Long Island Fair

My family and I visited the Long Island Fair this weekend.
There was a lot of different squashes
and some decorative displays.
We also walked through part of the Old Bethpage Restoration where the fair is held each year. The houses are from throughout Long Island, New York and have been moved to the Restoration to be preserved. The Restoration harkens to life on Long Island in the late 1800s.


I won some ribbons too!
Third place for my Daisy Square Afgan. You can find the Daisy Square Tutorial here. Thank you Annette.
Second place for my counted cross-stitch.

And finally, first place for my Scary Cat Pillow. Yay!
I definitely enjoyed my visit to the fair.
Joining Ginny for Yarn Along. What are you knitting or crocheting? What are you reading? Stop by her site to see what others are up to.
I have made a good deal of progress on my barn jacket.
I love the wool. It is so soft and easy to work with. Looking forward to a lot of knitting in the immediate future.
I am still reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. For some reason I am not drawn to sitting with a book right now so the reading is going quite slow. I am far more interested in working on all my current craft projects. I will be updating them in a future post.
Thanks for stopping by!
